Happy 70th Birthday, Rock Spring Garden Club!!
May 8, 2023

Happy Birthday to Us!!  70 years of horticulture, floral design, service to our community, and friendship! We certainly have a lot to celebrate – our club’s enriching activities, our membership in National Capital Area Garden Clubs and Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, and National Garden Clubs.  We’ve been challenged and blessed to carry through our mission of gardening education, flower shows, community gardens and civic development, our partnership with Arlington Schools, 4-H, and so much more.  Hundreds of women and men have been proud members of our community organizatiom here in Arlington over the last 70 years! We look forward to continuing our work the next 70 and beyond!

This month we are holding a celebration luncheon at the Washington Golf and Country Club. It’s a special members only event so we will not be having a regular monthly meeting and program.  In June, we will have a club member garden tour in lieu of a meeting, then we are off for the summer months, busy with our gardens and travel.  We are always open to having new members with a sincere interest in gardening join our club. Just email us at rock[email protected]  Here’s the latest newsletter, The Gardenzette, for more information about our club’s activities.  Just click here —> 09-The Gardenzette-May 2023-Public
